Abstract: Nowadays one can observe progressive demographic changes in the form of, among others, an increasing proportion of post-working age population and lowering birth rates. The negative consequences of these changes are visible especially in the labour market. For these reasons, it is necessary to undertake efforts aimed at improving working conditions, retraining employees, as well as introducing flexible working hours in order to increase employment among older people. These activities support the implementation of the concept of age management which is becoming increasingly popular among European countries. This idea aims to allow workers, and particularly the elderly, a fuller use of their abilities, thereby increasing their motivation to work. Consequently, it seems that higher employee productivity has a positive effect on the stabilization of employment and enterprise development.
